Exam season always feels rough – and never-ending. While we obviously can’t avoid feeling underprepared and stressed, there are steps that can be taken to reduce our workload. There are also endless advice pieces and videos on the internet that talk about this, but not enough that address the reality of the situation.
So often we find ourselves caged within a seemingly endless cycle of ‘hustle culture’, wherein self-worth and success are marked by quantity (basically how much you work) rather than the quality of your work – and that is only exacerbated by most of these ‘productivity’ videos and articles. Because of this, I’ve compiled several useful and realistic study tips for preparing both ahead of time and at the last minute.
Cramming at the last minute is never optimal, but irrespective of how studious anyone is, it’s important to have realistic insights into what exam season could look like in order to figure out solutions to any issue that might come your way.
